Account-Based Marketing for Manufacturers (Free Checklist)

Account-based marketing, or ABM as it’s also called, is a B2B marketing strategy that targets key businesses through a variety of channels. It’s similar to marketing in that you’ll go after specific audiences, but instead of focusing on the many, you’ll put your personalized, strategic marketing efforts into fewer, larger ticket accounts.

Because, ultimately, relationships are how you make money. One of the best ways to do this is through journey-based advertising.
